Thomas Guterbock, Director, and Deborah Rexrode, Senior Project Coordinator, attended the eighth annual meeting of the Association of Academic Survey Research Organizations held at the University of Illinois.
For several years, directors of academic survey centers met casually at the annual conference of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) during the AAPOR annual conference. During the meeting in 2006, it was agreed that the academic survey center directors would benefit from a more formal organization and to hold a meeting apart from AAPOR. In addition to its lunch gatherings each year at AAPOR, AASRO has also been holding annual meetings since February, 2007.
This year's meeting took place from March 6th to March 8th.
